Facelogics, a forensic composite and photo enhancement agency designed to assist law enforcement, has created brand new forensic art for a woman who was buried in a shallow grave just south of Alligator Alley in 1978.
This woman was discovered in the advanced stages of decomposition and her identity has yet to be determined. She had been covered in a white powder which was later revealed to be a caustic lime substance meant to help quicken the decomposition process. She had extensive tears on her face, scalp and right hand and she had suffered blunt force trauma to her head.
During her lifetime this woman had quite a bit of dental work done, including ceramic bridges on many of her teeth. Much of this work would have been done within the final two years of her life. The dental work was considered impressive and during the mid-to-late-1970s this type of dentistry might have only been able to be procured in a larger city.
Previously, the most recent forensic art in this woman's case had been uploaded to NAMUS, the National Missing and Unidentified Person System, in 2011.
Six missing women from six different states have been officially ruled out in her case. Her identity is still unknown. If you believe you might be able to assist with providing information on her case, contact the Collier County Sheriff's Office.
